Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Azealia Banks and Sarah Palin had a Twitter feud and it did not end well as the former governor of Alaska threatened to sue the rapper about her statements.

According to reports, Banks thought that a satirical news article from Newslo.com published last March 21 was real wherein Palin was jokingly quoted saying that African Americans enjoyed being slaves. Banks then took to Twitter to express her anger about Palin’s supposed comments noting that the Republican should be raped by a gang of black men. Banks realized that the article was not real and she deleted her tweets.

52-year-old Palin then took to Twitter and Facebook on Tuesday morning to respond to Banks. She wrote: "Hey Female Rapper. Listen up, little darling. No one has any idea what you're wigging out about in these bizarre, violent rants against me, but you're obviously not exercising enough intelligence to acknowledge you've been sucked into believing some fake interview in which I supposedly offered comments representing the antithesis of my truth."

The political figure then encouraged Banks to use her platforms for social good and added that she promises to go through her daughter’s playlist to make sure there are no songs about anti-woman and pro-rape “garbage that you seem to endorse.”

Banks continued to tweet about the matter on Tuesday and even attacked the former governor’s family. Palin then talked about suing the rapper about her explicit tweets writing: "So, for the first time I'm going to enjoy the only retribution some protected 'celebrities' seem to understand – I'm suing Azealia Banks and can't wait to share my winnings with others who have gone defenseless against lies and dangerous attacks far too long."

Banks then replied issuing an apology. She wrote that in her honest defense, she was “completely kidding” and she just happens to have a “really crass New York City sense of humor.”

She also wrote a lengthy letter on Tumblr wherein she said that she actually really likes the politician despite many Americans seeing her as someone to be ridiculed. Banks added, “You're very passionate about the things you believe in, super determined, and most certainly aware of who you are and where you stand in this world, as a parent, as a politician, but most importantly, as a woman.”
